I have never stayed at an Ibis Hotel before. I found the Ibis York to be both clean and reasonably well maintained. Upon entering it does look like it has received a recent makeover. The reception and restaurant area is white, clean and modern.
The location itself is central and within walking distance of the centre of York and all the attractions. I would advise getting there a little earlier than the 1400 hrs checking-in time; people have to leave by 1200 hrs, and this frees-up the very limited car-parking at the rear. Be prepared to have to find somewhere else to park.
The reception staff were very polite and professional, and one particular lady upon us checking-out was very chatty and amusing. The room was clean and basic, with tea/coffee-making facilities. It was a double room and came with a flat-screen TV and shower room. It was large enough considering we were only using it as a place to sleep/change, and it was perfectly comfortable.
The breakfast in the morning (that isn't included in the price of the room) was buffet-style and satisfying enough to set you up for the day. You could go up and get whatever you wanted as many times as you liked
The greatest plus, though, was the value for money. For a place in the centre of York and a double-room, I thought the price-tag was very agreeable (£75).
